Age-Friendly Communities Outreach Program

The Government of Ontario funds the Ontario Age-Friendly Community (AFC) Outreach Program, a program of the Ministry for Seniors and Accessibility. The AFC Outreach Program is administered by Queen’s University and the Centre for Studies in Aging and Health in partnership with the University of Waterloo.

The Ontario AFC Outreach Program builds on and complements Finding the Right Fit: Age-Friendly Community Planning – Ontario’s AFC planning guide and aims to increase:

  • awareness of age-friendly planning principles
  • access to best-practice research and information
  • connectivity between age-friendly community initiatives to enable the spread of promising practices and collective response to emerging gaps
  • capacity of age-friendly community initiatives to plan, implement, evaluate and sustain their age-friendly activities

For any age-friendly questions, please contact the program Knowledge Broker, Lisa Brancaccio, by phone 1-844-276-5756 or email
